Innanet James’ bubbly track “Memories” has gotten the visual treatment with a new video directed by Danny Chamberlain. The track originally appeared on the Maryland rapper’s album Keep It Clean from last fall and features London up-and-comer Taliwhoah, who also shows up in the video. James describes the song as having a feel of nostalgia, with references to his native Maryland, and the video follows suit with a stylistic vintage look.
The video depicts a day in the life of Innanet James that features interplay between him and Taliwhoah. The two make for an effortlessly compelling pair that blurs the lines between reality and fantasy, both musically and visually. Taliwhoah’s smooth, gliding vocal delivery in the hook is a beautiful counter to James’ intricate flow in the verses. The two have undeniable chemistry on screen as well, with charming shots both together and overlaid. James writes in the second verse, “Make money baby never let money make you / you ain’t coin star never let money change you,” which is a credo that seems likely to be put to the test in the future. James has impressive skills and with the “Memories” video, there should be more success for him on the horizon.
